We also have plans to talk exclusively to some pros and lots more. So, don’t go away. With that said, below are some videos of the finalists on Good Morning America today!! So fun!! For some LIVE pictures, see Madison J Taylors twitter page. She’s there and taking some fantastic shots. The GMA twitter and Instagram accounts have some awesome takes and video coverage as well too.

Extra interviewed Bruno and all the couples in rehearsals/. Sorry this is late. They are just getting this posted…
Tom Bergeron and Bruno Tonioli were on The Arsenio Hall Show last tonight. They talked of Dancing With The Stars and the finale. The beginning of the first below is hilarious! I won’t ruin it for you! Tom also talks on America’s Funniest Home Videos. Thanks to Jim for the heads up!!
Just some media tidbits to start a Sunday. First up, the 2014 25th Anniversary Emerald Ball took place in Los Angeles last night. Corky and Shirley Ballas were two of the judges. On the night, Shirley commented that it she called it “one of her favorites”. It was “full of fun. Young dancers. Fun dancers. Champions etc. Well put together I really enjoyed it.”. Karina Smirnoff, Gleb Savchenko, and Elena Samodanova were also in attendance. Below are a couple of fun pics from the event.
And speaking of Shirley Ballas….last night she also commented on at her facebook that she had seen Mark’s new video “Get My Name”. I love the “wow wow wow’s”….
Just seen the music video of mark produced and directed by Derek. Wow wow wow x
Don’t forget, you’ll be able to download this new single tomorrow. Also, Mark will be performing it on Dancing With The Stars tomorrow night as previously reported. ETA Correction: the video will be out next week!
Also, don’t miss seeing Bruno Tonioli at the Daily Mail. He made an appearance at the Jaguar North America And BritWeek Presents A Villainous Affair at the London West Hollywood car event this past week. He had to give the cars a “10” of course!
Lastly (and something I missed this past week), the Ice network interviewed Lindsay Arnold on Meryl and Charlie’s dances this past week. Note how she called Charlie and Sharna’s Paso Doble “one of the best she’s seen on the show”. Below is more for what she commented. I thought I’d throw this news in this post since we haven’t seen much promo from this team this week. You can read more on Meryl at the link.
“The paso doble is one of the most intense dances you can do. You need strong lines from the male and beautiful, also-strong lines from the woman,” said DWTS troupe member Lindsay Arnold, also a top-eight finisher on So You Think You Can Dance in 2012.
Arnold said she thought White and Burgess’ paso doble was one of the best she’s seen on the show and she disagreed with the judges’ assessment, which was two 9s, an 8 and a 10.
“He was able to get strong lines, but then he was able to show fluidity through his motion,” Arnold said.
“Charlie never disappoints,” she said. “I feel every single week he goes out there and does his absolute best. He’s able to work through any problem he has. … He already has a smart dancer mentality.”
And that is all…for now. One more day until dance time!!! Good luck to All! ~Vogue over and out!xx
Sooooo…anyone else have an unpleasant sense of deja vu from season 14 after last night’s show? Cause I sure am…it’s only the names that have changed: William Levy has been replaced with Meryl, and Donald Driver has been replaced with Charlie. William/Meryl can do no wrong in the eyes of the judges, is bathed in praise, and gets free passes for doing things that other couples get called out on in a heartbeat; while poor Donald/Charlie busts his ass and delivers not only some stellar dances, but manages to keep a smile on his face – yet week after week, he’s nitpicked to death by the judges and looks (along with his partner) beyond hurt as it’s happening. I hated the whole situation two years ago, and I hate it again now – the blatant pimping and obvious hosing of some couples vs. others is making me check out of this season just a little bit more with each passing week. There’s only one glimmer of hope on the horizon: William, despite all the pimping on his season, was only able to eke out 3rd place…while Donald, the weekly redheaded stepchild in the eyes of the judges, ended up winning the whole thing. Just some food for thought… Read more..
For a Saturday start up, head to the Daily Mail as they have a fun write up and picture of Bruno Tonioli enjoying the living room in his flat in West London, England. He bought it in 1991 and he calls it his “haven”. It’s a piece of Italy. See why at the link.
Be sure to listen and watch these two interviews. Bruno Tonioli is interviewed about Dancing With The Stars by Mario Lopez. They talk of the Switch up dance and more. NOTE how Mario is going to be a guest judge at some point in the season. Much thanks to Lori for the heads up with this news.
Bruno Tonioli Interviewed About The New Season Of Dancing With The Stars, Gives Early Analysis (Videos)
Bruno Tonioli was interviewed by Access Hollywood today about the new season of Dancing With The Stars. He gives an early analysis of the couples. He also talks about Erin Andrews and if she’ll make a good cohost, the switch up dance, and lots more.
In a new Strictly Come Dancing interview with Telly Mix, Bruno Tonioli talks of how hard it must be for a celebrity to take on the dance floor. It’s also something he’d never do. He points out how he’s done his time since it’s been 40 years he’s been in the industry. Incredible, isn’t it? Good read and note below how Bruno would like to see David Beckham or Kate Moss dance. Good idea. They would be really cool gets….on either on “Strictly Come Dancing” or “Dancing With The Stars”. What do you think?
“For years I’ve asked for David Beckham. he would be so good, old Goldenballs!
“I’ve even suggested that the BBC send him some special golden dancing shoes to tempt him.”
Bruno added: “He looks good in a suit, so he’d be great.. or Kate Moss!”
Meanwhile, the spicy Italian panelist explained he doesn’t envy the position of the stars who take to the dancefloor, saying he wouldn’t like to compete in the show himself.
The 58-year-old said: “I would never do it, I know what hard work it is!
“Next September will be my 40th year in the industry. I think I’ve done my bit.”
